These Birkenstock sandals are made from discarded Hermès Birkin bags, making for a unique shoe with an interesting story behind it. The movement toward a more sustainable future has extended to the fashion world, which is responsible for a large portion of landfill waste and water contamination.
In response to conscious consumer outcry, many brands are responding with their own environmentally friendly initiatives. The new design takes on Birkenstock's most iconic silhouette, putting a high-fashion twist on affordable footwear. Now, this shoe retails for between $34,000 to $76,000 USD. The shoes arrive in multiple colorways, including white, maroon or black, with each iteration boasting a one-of-a-kind look due to the unique nature of its production.
